Search specific group in the new SuperSearch It feature

Post by Sparwhawk » Mon Oct 24, 2011 1:38 pm

If I for example want to search the group "alt.binaries.pictures" I get results from every group that have "alt.binaries.pictures" in there name.

Is there a way to only search in the group I specified?

Thanks in advance

Disconnect/reconnect to start download

Post by the doctor » Mon Oct 24, 2011 5:08 pm

v5b7

A situation is still occurring occasionally when selecting an article for download, the download does not begin. The article shows in the connections server list but does not do anything.

Have to click the connect button to disconnect then click it again to reconnect and then the article begins downloading.

the new extract destination manager really needs the option for extract to separate subfolder and date and time prefix
1) defined per subject match
2) defined for the non-matches

Hi,
you added SuperSearchIt to the right-click menu but it doesn't do anything (you probably forgot to connect the function, I guess it should open the window like F4).
Also please don't have it on top of the right-click menu, especially not in SuperSearch view - "Leech" should stay first.
Other than that: a handy new feature!

Specify Groups in Extract Destination Manager

Post by ITMadMan » Wed Oct 26, 2011 8:48 pm

If possible to implement, I think it would be logical and helpful to specify specific groups for Extract Destination Manager. I extract music files to a "Music" folder. So if I could specify downloads from alt.binaries.lossless or alt.binaries.sounds.lossless or other defined groups extract to this music folder, it would be extremely helpful. Same for other downloads of course, such as TV episodes and such.

That's not possible at the moment, but I'm working on implementing it into SuperSearch.

I'll make sure it's fixed before the V5.0 final release.

Yep, I'll hook it up for the next release.

You're right. I'll look into placing the function somewhere else in the popups.

If I understand you correctly, your 2nd point is already implemented right ? ( at the bottom of the Dest. Mgr. dialog )

Yea, good idea. That's definitely on my todo.

I haven't noticed that myself.

Can you somehow reproduce the problem consistently? Maybe by temporarily disabling some of your servers.

Does the log give any useful info when it happens?
